Thoughts
Sorry the picture is a mess, it was late and I was tired and didn’t want to stand in the kitchen until I got the lighting etc. just right.

My son and I went to Skyline Chili a few years ago and he loved it, me not so much. The other day he asked me to find a recipe and make it so I did. I didn’t think I’d like it but to my surprise I loved it. He said it tasted like what the restaurant had but I thought it was a lot better. I’m thinking it was all the shredded cheese I put in mine, they don’t give you very much.

You can add beans to the chili (my personal recipe has beans in it) but they don’t add beans at the restaurant so I didn’t. You can also serve it over spaghetti or hotdogs.

This is a quick and easy recipe and since we both liked it I plan on making it again sometime.

  1. I’ll be copying that recipe!

    Thanks for your kind words about our rescue dog. We still love and miss Aja and Kobe but it brings joy to our hearts to see this little guy happy.

    • I hope you like the chili as much as we did!

      You’ll always miss and love Kobe and Aja, but your new fur kid will definitely ease the pain. I still miss, love, and think about my childhood dog Buffy.

  2. I’m pinning this! I’ve never really been a chili fan but my husband loves it and this looks pretty good!
